this problem? well, today in washington house majority leader eric cantor tried something, and he does this from time to time, as he tries to be taken seriously as a leader of his party, or at least as a potential leader of his party. in 2010, eric cantor launched his young guns thing. young guns, presumably to try to supplant the old guns in the party. he then launched something called cut and grow so you at home could set the republican party's agenda instead of the old guys in the party who are setting the party's agenda. in 2009 he launched something called the national council for a new america to tap outside the beltway ideas for the republican party's agenda. sadly, the pizza parlor that he chose for that launch event for his big outside the belt initiative was a pizza parlor that literally was inside the beltway. you see, the beltway is not just a metaphor for things around washington. the beltway is a freeway around the d.c. area that defines that area. and mr. cantor's outside the beltway pizza parlor excitement was actually well inside that freeway loop. and that actually wa

shouldn't. today it was eric cantor's turn. the young dick nixon of the gop house is now saying he wants change. trouble is what he's said before and where he talked today. the super hawk of the party gave his manifesto at the city's nonprofit war room, the american enterprise institute. what he came out for, some new dedegree that colleges have to conduct employment surveys to say what jobs there are for history majors, english majors, you name it. i guess he wants to cut down on these people taking liberal subjects in college that allow you to think and express yourself. he sounds like he wants the federal government to have become a helicopter mom hovering over all of us. and they say democrats are intervening in people's live. what will republicans do next to try to deflect from their history of starting unnecessary wars, chasing minorities and others from the polling places. being hawkish and undemocratic are not exactly great recruiting posters. let's face it. helping me to explain the latest republican face lift are john feehery and dee dee myers. we'll start with this. we know ka

, as we saw with eric cantor coming out, rebranding or wanting to rebrand the republican party and where they're starting. it seems as if this message is one that we've heard before but from a different person. take a look. >> well, it starts by making sure that everyone in america gets a fair shot at success. >> our goal is to ensure that every american has a fair shot to earn success. >> that's why immigrants from around the world historically have flocked to our shores. >> that hope led generation of immigrants to risk everything to endure a tough journey to come to our shores. >> we should be giving people the chance to get new skills and training. >> as job markets are emerging, more skills and training are needed. >> so the rebranding is about going to pre-election speeches and drafting those as your own now post-election for eric cantor? >> it's amazing, because "fair shot" has been such a signature phrase for barack obama. he's been using it for over a year. so it really was striking to hear eric cantor literally lifting lines from barack obama. i guess what the republican party

"we must balance respect for the rule of law and respect for those waiting to enter this country legally with care for people and families, most of whom just want to make a better life and contribute to america." do you take from that statement some possible movement? >> i feel very encouraged by his statement. and i was so glad that he was part of the eight group of bipartisan senators that came up with a framework. i think this is a great step forward. >> we also saw the pictures a little bit earlier of janet napolitano. she was on the u.s./mexican border. and as you know, there were a lot of republicans who were saying that these changes need to be tied to tougher border security. let me get your take on that and what you think can and should happen. >> well, let me say that more money has been put into border security than all the other federal law enforcement agencies combined.

of the union speech, the number two republican in the house is making over the gop message. eric cantor speaks to the american enterprise institute about 90 minutes from now. this morning he spoke exclusively with our dana bash. dana, i want to bring you in on this. eric cantor is not the first republican to shake up his party and give a new direction. there's a brand new poll that shows president obama has a 70% approval rating among hispanics, are republicans listening more to that than eric cantor or a little of both? >> reporter: a little of both. i think if you ask eric cantor they are not mutually exclusive. a big part of why he will give this speech is because republicans understand what happened in the last election. which is that they got the majority of white men, that's about it. but interestingly enough, when it comes to immigration, we have seen big movement on the senate side, especially among republicans. but still house republican leaders, including eric cantor, they are still very cautious, when it comes to immigration reform that includes a path so citizenship. listen to what

, not moving towards the center on this issue. eric cantor seems to be changing his song a little bit, and the hearings themselves would seem to indicate a party that wants to reform itself in ernest on reform. >> after the bipartisan agreement on the senate to a pathway to citizenship that was endorsed by marco rubio of all people, the onus is really on what the house of representatives will do. >> house speaker john boehner, he had three occasions. he declined to endorse a pathway to citizenship overtly. that doesn't mean he won't support it in the future, but he just sort of said, look, we need to set in the house to come together and work their will with legislation. what i can tell you is there's a bipartisan group in the house of representatives that is trying to craft literal legislation as we speak. what's the difference from that from what the senate was doing last week? well, the senate sort of had a framework of where they wanted to go. the house will have little legislation that will he they feel will be acceptable to both sides that perhaps would contain a pathway to citi
